A Small Sample of Client Reviews

"Mike and Sara are so lovely and have looked after my puppy, Wilson, for a mixture of daycare and boarding since he was young. Wilson absolutely loves it!! He gets so excited and can't wait to go inside where he's spoilt with love and attention all day long. Sara happily sends pupdates during the day and he always looks so happy - can't ask for anything more! I would highly recommend their services".

"Mike and Sara are an amazing team. We couldn’t be happier with their services. We use grooming, boarding / walking and training and highly recommend all. Very knowledgeable, caring and reliable. They offer a home from home experience making our pup and us feel at ease and very happy. The training we’ve done has totally transformed our life and our dogs for the better at a time when we were very close to giving up. We can’t thank you enough!"

"Mike and Sara are a great team, and quite clearly very knowledgable about puppies and dogs! They are easy going and supportive, with a lab puppy things can be hard work sometimes but Sara has lots of tips and tricks to make things easier. Abel loves them both and enjoys his walks and playtime with Mike! I'll always recommend these two, they make owning a pup that much easier. Thanks for all you do guys! X"

"Mike and Sara go out of their way to accomodate even the most sensative or 'special' of guests, and my two have found a home from home now which they really loved and relaxed in. I know this from the lovely pics I received while I was away, and the happy dogs I bought home after. Well, actually my collie was so impressed with Mikes ball throwing skills, she took some persuading to leave!! Thank you so much to a lovely couple, highly recommend".
